Damn Everything But the Circus

The work in this exhibit was inspired by the following quote attributed to e. e. cummings:

 

damn everything that is grim, dead, motionless, unrisking, inward turning. damn everything that won’t get into the circle, that won’t enjoy, that won’t throw its heart into the tension, surprise, fear and delight of the circus, the round world, the full existence.  
– e. e. cummings

 

I trust that I’ve been able to communicate these sentiments, painting with energy’ bravery and
joyful abandon.
